Occupational Therapy  Master's


What is Occupational Therapy at WVU like?


Occupational therapy (OT) professionals provide services to people of all ages with physical, mental, developmental or emotional disabilities. Assessment and treatment focus on developing an individual’s capacity to function independently in self-care, leisure or work activities at home and in the community.

We offer a 3-year undergraduate/graduate Master’s in Occupational Therapy program. This program is also known as a 2 + 3. Students typically complete two years of prerequisite courses and then apply to the program. Students also can apply to the program after they have completed a bachelor’s degree and the prerequisite courses.

Students receive two degrees during the program: a Bachelor of Arts in Human Performance and Health (after the first two years) and a Master’s of Occupational Therapy (MOT) at the end of the program. Our program begins in June of each year and accepts 40 students a year.
